Asia is changing rapidly but its future is far from clear. Will the world continue to witness the historic shift from west to east or will the region stumble? What are the opportunities and risks in Asia over the next decade, and what skills, capacities and resources will be needed to respond effectively to them?
Canada-Asia 2013 will bring fresh perspectives and on-the-ground insights from leading experts across Asia and Canada. It will explore the major economic, political, security and social forces shaping the region today, such as the rise of the middle class, the focus on creativity and innovation and the urgent need for green growth. The conference will assess the implications of these profound developments for businesses and governments, and draw up recommendations for an Asia Strategy for Canada.
